Victor is an active 8-year-old boy from Kenya. In 2019, Victor's mother took him to be treated for anorectal malformation birth condition and discovered that Victor has undescended testes. Victor's father works as a taxi driver, and his mother is not able to work as she has to take care of Victor and his siblings, one of whom is disabled. Victor has been diagnoses with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Victor has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future. He is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 30th with assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Victor’s mother shared, “I was worried about the delay in getting help for Victor but I am relieved to know that my son will finally get the help that he needs."
Muhamad is 12-years-old and lives in Ethiopia with his parents and two younger siblings. Eight months ago, Muhamad fell and developed an infection in his right leg that worsened and spread to the bone. Muhamad can now barely walk, even with the help of crutches. As a result, he now stays home from school with his father as he farms and tends to the family's animals. Muhamad is very smart and outgoing. He misses playing soccer with his friends. With our support of $815, he will receive bone graft surgery that will allow him to walk again and return to school.
